Andy Cohen To Host Float At WorldPride March

In addition to being the patriarch, godfather, and ultimate supreme ruler of all things Real Housewives, Andy Cohen is a new dad and the host of Bravo’s late night talk show, Watch What Happens Live.  As the first openly gay American late night talk show host, Andy has long been an eloquent and gracious advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.

New York City is currently hosting WorldPride, the world’s largest Pride event, spanning the entire month of June.   The Bravo network is known for its support of the LGBTQ+ community.  So it is no surprise that Bravo and Andy have a float in the parade this year.

Bravo’s The Daily Dish confirmed some of the Bravolebrities who will be joining Andy on the float, and, Bravo fans, clear your schedules.  You are going to be glued to your Instagram feeds on June 30.   Andy told The Daily Dish, “Bravo has a long history of representing the LGBTQ community through its programming.” He also declared, “I’m proud to be a part of this network and its history, and I’m honored to be marching toward another 50 years of progress and equality”

This collection of attention-seekers Pride-supporters is sure to thoroughly document the occasion. According to The Daily Dish, Real Housewives of New York stars Tinsley MortimerDorinda Medley, and  Sonja Morgan will be there. And we all know how much Sonja loves “her gays.” Which, incidentally, has to be the most insulting phrase ever.  Maybe participating in the Pride march will teach Sonja that homosexuals are humans, not possessions, and would prefer to be referred to as such.   Sonja, when you know better, you do better.

Vanderpump Rules cast member Billie Lee has been famously open about being transgender.  Or, rather, she’s transgender, hold the “famous.”

I mean, she’s the least famous person on a show full of only marginally famous people.  So, famous is probably a stretch.

Below Deck Mediterranean star  Captain Sandy Yawn will join the Bravolebrities on the float. Captain Sandy has publicly discussed the criticisms she has endured going public in a new relationship.

New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs will make the commute to the Big Apple for the parade.

Feuding Atlanta Housewives NeNe Leaks and Cynthia Bailey will probably stand far way from each other on the float. Or maybe Eva Marcille will stand in between them as a buffer. Hopefully, they’ll be able to keep it civil and channel on the peaceful purpose of the day.

Other Bravolebrities coming through for the big event include Reza Farahan, Patricia Altschul, LeeAnne Locken,  Kelly Dodd, and Gizelle Bryant.

Furthermore, there’s a very glaring omission from the parade line-up. Lisa Vanderpump!  One of the greatest gay icons of our time! My prediction is that LVP will make a grand entrance as a surprise guest. Mybe she can dress tip to toe in pink rhinestones, clutching one of those small, fluffy dogs she drags everywhere.  I hope she pops out of a cake!
